Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-330: On the Street: An Example of the New Economy

Bag ladies have something in common with me as a child.

As I was pulling out of a parking lot I saw a bag lady pounding on a newspaper kiosk trying to dislodge any change in the coin return.  I salute her efforts.  It reminded me of myself as a child.  One of my hopes was to find change in pay phone coin returns.  The tragedy comes from seeing adults who have had every opportunity going around trying to find spare change out of vending machines.

My fear is that this is in the future for many of us.

  1. We reached our pinnacle in the late 50's, I fear (or maybe WWII). Whenever it was, it's all downhill from here.

    1. I keep hoping that the momentum will propel us up the other side but I can't see the other side yet.

      Grace and peace.

    2. I guess I just feel that the time is upon us that some of the prophesies will be fulfilled, Pumice.

    3. I am not into prophecy very much but even I can see what you are talking about and agree with you.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
